Walter “Butch, Wally” Warwick, age 68, of Roberts, WI, passed away Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at Westfields Hospital in New Richmond, WI surrounded by his loving family. Walter was born on July 27, 1951 in Chippewa Falls, WI, the son of Adam and Alice (Cummings) Warwick. Walter was raised in the Lake Holcombe area, and graduated from Holcombe High School. He moved to River Falls to start his career in manufacturing; he also had a passion for cooking and worked at several restaurants in the area. On May 19, 1973, he was united in marriage to Diane Langer at Saint Bridget’s Church in River Falls, WI.
Walter loved to spend his days outdoors whenever he could; he fished many lakes in the area for anything that would bite on his line. He also took pleasure in cultivating vegetable gardens as well as maintaining flowers and plants. Walter enjoyed his time deer hunting most of all; from sun-up to sun-down, he never considered a day in the woods as a day wasted.
